DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP TRAFFIC
This information has changed for the 2018-2019 school year.
The area around the school is congested around drop-off and pick-up. For the safety of all students and drivers please follow the instructions below. Between 7:45-8:10 and 2:10-2:45 you will not be able to make a left turn into the school parking lot if you are driving west-bound on 24th. Please see the traffic map for the route the City of Clyde Hill has established for the most efficient routes to use throughout the neighborhood. Eastbound NE 24th St drivers are asked to pull to the shoulder, to create a pick-up/drop-off queue. Having the queue use the shoulder will keep the eastbound lane clear on NE 24th St and allows non-school through-traffic on eastbound NE 24th St to flow efficiently during these heavy traffic periods. Please do not make U-Turn on 24th between 96th and 92nd. The hill and oncoming traffic create a dangerous situation. When using the pick-up and drop-off lines, please pull forward in the “horseshoe”. This will allow us to load multiple cars at once and ensure that the students are not crossing between moving cars. Please also ensure you child(ren) enter/exit the vehicle on the right, due to passing traffic on the left. Once your student has entered/exited the vehicle in the “horseshoe”, proceed left around the waiting vehicles and exit the “horseshoe”. The area in front of the office is the bus zone. This means the “horseshoe” is our only student pick up and drop off point unless you park your car. The adults and patrol members in the parking lot will help get your child in and out of the car as this will help keep the traffic moving.
OTHER TRAFFIC REMINDERS
If you park next to a red curb you may receive a ticket for at least $124. Likewise, failing to follow the direction of a flagger/patrol person can result in a fine of at least $124. It is imperative we do not use the Police/City Hall parking lots or block their exits at any time.
